COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

Cloudy golden color. Big piny vegetal hop aroma. A little malt in the flavor but the hops are big and bitter. Nice beer but a little on the bitter piny side for me.

Deschutes have a way of naming their beers that basically tells it as it is. Pine Drops! Its pine in the nose all the way through to the pallet. Tastes like your drinking fresh pine juice. Nice and hoppy.

Pine, moss, and marigold nose. Hazy amber, medium head, good lace. Marigold, marijuana, and collards, grain husk finish. Gym sock overtones. Medium body, easy carbonation, resinous. Iím not a fan of the hop bill.

beerbaaron (1957) - Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Clear, bright light orange. Frothy white head. Pine mixed nicely with sweet caramel. Some sweet citrus as well. Maybe too sweet, but very tasty. Mild bitterness. Thankfully pine isnít harsh or cloying.

AmandaJane (1) - Occidental, California, USA - SEP 15, 2016 does not count
Bright citrus herbal aroma, and dry bitter hoppiness and citrus peel notes. Fairly light in body with a pleasantly astringent finish. Crisp and clean, not malty sweet.

crispaire (45) - - SEP 6, 2016
Poured from bottle. Aroma of a danky, freshly rained on forest, which is a bit refreshing compared to the stereotypical IPAs. But when the taste matches the aroma, leaving you with a foresty, pine-forward aftertaste, thatís where I draw the line. Other than that, itís a decent middle of the road IPA.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2016
12 ounce bottle, 3/19/16. Hazy golden, medium foamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, pine, pale malt. The taste is tropical fruit, grapefruit, lime, pale malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

tightslice (957) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle from Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pine, vegetal, mild marmalade. Taste is light pine, bitter vegetal hops. Not offensive but this one is a miss for me.

scotchzombie (533) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Pine drops Pours golden Amber with a massive foamy white head that laces massively. Aroma is grass and piney hops. Taste is short with a touch of citrus; pine and hopped bitterness dominates. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
